In this country, we never tire of seeing elk...never! My "bucket list" always includes photographing elk. A year and a half ago, I was fortunate enough to spend 20 minutes one early morning with a group of bull elk, but I was only in zoom lens distance. Today, I still had a zoom lens, but I was much closer to two bulls who were trying to cross the highway. The next valley has become the temporary residence of hundreds of elk who have moved down from the mountains. The snow is deep, the wind often blows relentlessly, and the elk are searching for food. This is the time of year when the bulls become "bachelors" in groups, although some stay with the large herds of cows and calves. When two bachelor bulls were traveling alone today, I happened to be in a car very close to them -- with my camera. I much prefer focusing on the heads of elk, but this will do for now.
